Full text of "Official Automobile Blue Book"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non- commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search

Look for This 

SIGN 



IT is the sign carried by all garages 
and stations which sell SOCONY 
Motor Gasoline and Polarine oil and 
greases. 

Gasoline bought under the SOCONY Sign 
is a guaranteed, uniform product. It is 
the same now as last week — here or two 
hundred miles away. 

With SOCONY Motor Gasoline in your 
tank, and Polarine in your crank case, 
your engine troubles will be few and far 
between. 

Look for the red, white and blue SOCONY 
Sign — 

The Sign of a Reliable Dealer 
and the World's Best Gasoline.

How toUse the Blue Book

volume of the Blue Book. They are designed to act as 
short cuts in finding the information you desire. 

Index of Towns and Cities (Pages 14 to 72). 

Alphabetical list of cities and towns with key to their 
location on large general index map (Page 7) front 
of book. Populations, hotels and garages. Outgoing 
routes, points of interest, and references to street 
maps are also given for the larger towns and cities. 
Use the key (letter and number) to locate a town on 
large index map. 

General Index Map (Page 7). 

Folded Inside Front Cover

(2) General Index Map (Page 7). This map will show 
you all the routes between two given points. Select the 
route you wish to take. The number on the route selected 
with arrow pointing in the direction you ivish to go is your 
Route Number and refers you to the 

(3) Running Directions in the body of the book. You 
will find the "Route Numbers" at the top of each page. 

In Planning Long Tours 

Route Chart (Page 4). 

Route Numbers and arrowheads, with distances between 
terminals, will be found on the Route Chart and may be 
used in exactly the same way as the General Index Map. 
For Volume Number, information on adjacent territory, 
see Page 756. 

How to Use the Running Directions 

The "Running Directions" are the printed text matter 
describing each route. Two columns of figures are shown 
on the left side of each page of text matter (Running 
Directions). The outside column shows the total or 
accumulated mileages from the starting point of the route 
to any point on the route. The inside column shows the 
mileage between two adjacent or consecutive points or 
towns. 

Checking Your Route by Following Your Odometer 

It is most important to set your odometer (the "trip" part 
of your speedometer) at the beginning of each route, 
just as you leave the definite starting point, or at any 
point where the route is taken, as indicated in the l eft-hand 
column of mileages in the running directions. 

Differences in tire sizes, varying inflation and other ele- 
ments may cause variation in the recording instrument's 
record. When your odometer is running over or under 
the mileage as printed in the Automobile Blue Book, 
make allowance accordingly. Resetting your odometer 
to tally with the text mileage, as suggested, will greatly 
assist you in locating each turning point. 

ALL Blue Book mileage records are checked by two 
odometers, used in charting roads, to insure the accuracy 
of the mileage as recorded.

General Index 



A Combined Listing of Towns, Populations, Routes, 
Hotel and Garage Accommodations. 

Cities and Towns on the General Index Map in this volume are listed here 
alphabetically, irrespective of States. 

Town names with an asterisk (*) appear only on the enlarged Index Map 
of the New York City Section. (Page 5 of the General Index Map.) 

List of Routes is noted under Route Terminals and important towns. 

City Street Maps and Points of Interest Notations at Route Centers 
will be found on the pages as noted under those towns. 

Key Letter and Numbers, which appear after town names, refer to let- 
ters and numbers on the margins of the General Index Map, in the front of 
the book. In order to locate a town on the General Index Map and obtain the 
numbers of the routes touching it, first note the Key Letters and Numbers to 



the towns in this Index and then refer to corresponding Let- 
ters and Numbers on the border of the General Index Map. 
Follow an imaginary straight line from both marginal Letter 
and Number and the desired town should 'be found near the 
point where these two imaginary lines converge. 

Hotels, Garages and Other Advertisers are listed here 
under their respective cities or towns, with their addresses and 
reference to pages where their advertisements will be found.

rectly your actual mileage per gallon, etc.), also oil, tubes, 
insurance, expense, touring memo, etc. It tells also the 
story about Walden-Worcester-Wrenches. IT COSTS YOD 
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Just mail us self addressed 
stamped envelope and mark No. 60 on left corner and you 
will receive your copy free. You do not need to write a 
letter. The No. 60 does it. 

We also have copies cloth bound, printed on ledger paper, no 
advertising matter, twice as much record space ; which will 
be sent prepaid on receipt of twenty-five ceuts.

TRAVELERS AUTOMOBILE POUCIES 

Covering: PERSONAL INJURY 

PROPERTY DAMAGE 
COLLISION 



Personal Injury Policy protects against liability for injuries to 
other people. 

Property Damage protects against damage to other people's prop- 
erty. 

It is the policy of The Travelers to settle claims amicably, thus 
saving its policyholders the necessity of appearing in court. If, 
however, suit is brought, The Travelers defends the case, defrays 
all the court costs and expenses and pays the verdict (if any) 
up to the limit of the policy. 

Automobilists need quick and efficient service when away from 
home and The Travelers through its great organization provides 
it everywhere in the United States and Canada. 
An identification card accompanies each policy, upon presenta- 
tion of which the assistance of our adjusters and inspectors is 
immediately available. 

COLLISION CERTIFICATE covers damages to your own car 
by collisions .with any object. 

ACCIDENT POLICIES 

Every automobile owner should also carry Personal Accident 
Policies* Automobile accidents constitute 1 6. 5 % of the total 
number of personal accident claims paid by The Travelers and 
19.5% of the total benefits paid.

New York City 



In this suggestion to motorists regarding New York City and vicin- 
ity, Columbus Circle, the intersection of Broadway, Eighth Avenue, 
and 59th Street, is the center from which radiate lines of travel as 
follows : 

1. Through the northern part of Manhattan, the Bronx, points on Long Island 
Sound, and points in the Hudson Vallev and lower Croton watershed. 

2. Through the southern part of Manhattan to Staten Island and the south- 
western section of Brooklyn. 

3. To the west across the ferries leading to northern, central and southern 
parts of New Jersey. 

4. To the east over the bridges, which form the gateways to northeastern 
Brooklyn, the resorts on the south shore, adjacent to Brooklyn, and all points in 
the central and western part of Long Island, and along the -western section of 
the north shore. 

Northern Manhattan, Western Bronx 



To reach the northwestern part of Man- 
hattan, the lower western part of the Bronx, 
and points near the east shore of the Hudson, 
ai far as Yonkers and beyond, it is possible 
to take one of several routes from Columbus 
Circle. 

Possibly the most popular and the one 
which usually has the best road surface is to 
follow Broadway to 72nd Street, turn west to 
Riverside and follow this to 155th Street (be- 
yond Trinity Cemetery) and there continue to 
bear left along Riverside Drive to Dyckman 
Street, which is the junction of the drive 
and Broadway. The latter may be followed 
directly through Yonkers and to points be- 
yond, or tourists may turn left at 230th 
Street after crossing the Harlem River Ship 
Canal, and bear left and right up Riverdale 
Avenue, along the top of a ridge which over- 
looks the Vale of Yonkers on the right, and 
drops down on the west to the edge of the 
Hudson River. This avenue is also a good 
route through Yonkers, and avoids, by bearing 
left, the congested corner in that city known 
as Getty Square. 



Those who wish to reach the Grand Boule- 
vard, Jerome and Sedgwick Avenues, which 
are the direct lines running through the west- 
ern part of the Bronx, may leave Columbus 
Circle and follow Broadway, or Riverside 
Drive, to 145th Street, where there is a right 
turn crossing the bridge over the Harlem into 
149th Street, the Bronx. At the top of the 
hill turn to the left on Mott Avenue and into 
the Grand Boulevard and Concourse, which 
continues to Mosholu Parkway. 

To reach Jerome Avenue from the Circle, 
the most direct route is to follow the west 
drive of Central Park from Columbus Circle, 
and at the northwestern gate of the Park, 
which leads to Central Park West (Eighth 
Avenue), continue to bear right one block 
further east, inside the Park to Seventh Ave- 
nue, then left out of the Park and follow 
Seventh Avenue to its end at 153rd Street; 
there turn left and next right across the 
Central Bridge over the Harlem and follow 
Jerome Avenue to its intersection with the 
Grand Concourse at Mosholu Parkway.

New York City 



Sedgwick Avenue, which is the most west- 
ern of the through thoroughfares in the west 
part of the Bronx, but which is not always 
in good condition over its entire length, may 
be reached by the Jerome Avenue route by 
turning sharp left after crossing the bridge 
at 155th Street, on to Sedgwick Avenue. 

There is a pleasant variation from River- 
side Drive for those bound from 155th Street 
to Dyckman Street, along the Hudson. At 
159th Street and Broadway turn left on Fort 
Washington Avenue, and follow to its northern 
terminus, which winds to the right down 
Abbey Hill and into Broadway at the west 
base of Fort George. 

Van Cortlandt Park, which is the northern 
end of the section just described, may be 
reached from the Concourse on its east, or 
Broadway, on its west. Those who enter the 
Park from Broadway may turn to the right at 
the end of the subway structure, which at 
that point is an elevated road, and continue 
to the overhead crossing of the Putnam Divi- 
sion of the New York Central. West of the 
tracks ip a turn left, to the old Van Cortlandt 
mansion, or the tourist may continue under 
the tracks and bear left around the Van 
Cortlandt lakes and the golf course, and on 
to Yonkers through the upper woods of the 
park. About midway of the golf course in 
the Park is a turn to the right up the hill to 
Jerome Avenue. There is another road lead- 
ing east to Jerome Avenue from the lower 
end of the golf course. 

There are numerous points of interest in 
this section, beginning with Central Park at 
the edge of Columbus Circle, where there is 
a collection of animals called the Central 
Park Zoo. The Metropolitan Museum has the 
most noted art collection in America, and may 
be reached by turning east out of the Park 
onto Fifth Avenue at Miner's Gate (79th 
Street). 

At 77th Street and Central Park West is 
the Museum of Natural History. On River- 
side Drive between 72nd and Grant's Tomb are 
the residences of many wealthy and well 
known people. 



Broadway as far south as cuimnbus circle, 
and below, was an Indian trail, and was 
opened as a Kings Highway by the British 
about 1703 and called Queen Ann's Road. 
It was eventually extended as far north as Al- 
bany, making it one of the oldest highways of 
more than one hundred miles in the United 
States. 

Practically all of the ancient houses be- 
tween the Harlem River and Columbus Circle 
in this western section have been torn down, 
except one at 204th Street and Broadway, 
known as the Dyckman house, and recently 
restored. It is the oldest farmhouse on Man- 
hattan Island. 

Near 181st Street and Fort Washington 
Avenue was Fort Washington. On what 
was until recently a part of the estate of 
C. K. G. Billings, now owned by a cor- 
poration, in which the Rockefellers are in- 
terested, is the site of Fort Tryon, the last 
stand made by the Continental Army on the 
Island of Manhattan before the retreat to 
White Plains. Beyond this point and beyond 
where Washington Road turns down Abbey 
Hill is a promontory (reached by a poor road) 
affording a magnificent view of the Hudson 
and the Pajisades, probably the best on the 
lower part of the river. On this point the 
white settlers maintained a lookout for ap- 
proaching Indians, and it was also a signal 
point during the Revolution. 

Fort George, formerly an amusement resort, 
lies to the east of Broadway, opposite Wash- 
ington Heights, and is quite as historic as the 
latter, although its historic landmarks have 
been largely obliterated by modern improve- 
ments. At the northeast base of Fort George 
runs the Harlem River Speedway, where 
the wealthy owners of trotters and pacers con- 
gregated on afternoons, prior to the coming 
of the automobile, and had lively brushes with 
their animals, often with large sums at stake. 
There are still a few devotees to this sport, but 
their ranks are rapidly thinning, and it will 
doubtless be thrown open to motor traffic in 
the near future. The western end of the 
Speedway is a part of Dyckman Street.

New York City 



Trinity Cemetery, at Broadway and 155th 
Street, is owned by Trinity Church, which 
stands at the head of Wall Street, and is one 
of the most historic burying grounds of the 
east. The cemetery, until later years, cut 
Broadway at this point, and it was with diffi- 



culty that the city obtained the right to build 
a thoroughfare through it. Riverside Drive, 
which skirts it on the west, is built on a steel 
viaduct at a large cost, to avoid disturbing the 
graves. 



Northeastern Manhattan and Bronx 



To reach the northeastern part of Man 
hatttn and the Bronx there is not a great 
Tariety of good roads. From Columbus Circle 
the tourist may follow the East Drive in the 
Park, which is equally as good as the West 
Drive, or up Fifth Avenue to 110th Street; 
from there it is desirable to use Seventh 
Avenue to 145th Street, turn right over the 
bridge and east, up the hill, to Mott Avenue, 
then along the Grand Concourse to Fordham 
Road, turning to the right and following into 
Pelham Parkway, at the beginning of which 



is the Zoological Gardens, on the south, and 
the Botanic -Gardens on the north. In the 
Botanic Garden grounds is the original Loril- 
lard mansion and site of the snuff mill where 
the foundation of the family fortune was made. 
The Parkway leads through Pelham Manor, 
which was the seat of Lord Pell, a manorial 
lord prior to the Revolution. 

The Bronx is very extensive, and has many 
good roads, but is not particularly interesting 
to the casual visitor aside from the line 
which has been described. 



Southern Manhattan 



For several years it has been more difficult 
to reach the section south of Columbus Circle, 
particularly on the west side, than any other 
part of the city, but subway improvements are 
rapidly drawing to a close, and Broadway and 
Seventh Avenue, which form direct lines south 
from the Circle, may be improved as to sur- 
face during the summer of 1917. 

On Sunday, Broadway makes a desirable 
thoroughfare to the Battery, as there is little 
traffic, but on week days the stranger visiting 
New York will find Seventh Avenue (if the 



surface has been restored) the better and more 
direct route. It may be followed to Canal 
Street, and from there south all streets are 
congested, but West Broadway and Church 
Street usually offer the Quickest road to the 
Battery, where there is a ferry to Staten 
Island. 

There are good roads through Staten Island 
to another ferry connecting with the Jersey 
coast and the direct shore road to south Jer- 
sey seashore resorts, Lake wood, etc. 



Southwestern Brooklyn and Shore Resorts 



Those who wish to go over the Williams- 
burg Bridge into southwestern Brooklyn, or 
to the neighborhood of Coney Island, will find 
Broadway to 14th Street usable on Sundays, 



and on week days it is best to use Madison 
Avenue to 23rd Street and Fourth Avenue to 
Cooper Square; then down the Bowery to De- 
lancey Street, then east over the Williamsburg

New York City 



Bridge, and right into Taylor Street and Bed- 
ford Avenue, for Coney Island and neighbor- 
ing resorts. 

At Bedford Avenue and Eastern Parkway 
there is an option of routes to Coney Island. 
One is via Bedford Avenue and into the Coney 
Island Boulevard, at the southeastern end of 
Prospect Park. The other is west from Bed- 
ford Avenue and Eastern Parkway into tlie 
Park at the Plaza Gate and through the 
winding drives of the Park to the entrance of 
Coney Island Avenue. 

The same route, as far as the Williams- 
burg bridge, should be employed to reach 
the Manhattan Bridge, continuing beyond De- 
lancey Street to Canal Street, the entrance 
to Manhattan Bridge. This bridge leads into 
Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn, which runs di- 



rectly to the main entrance of Prospect Park, 
known as the Plaza. 

To reach the Brooklyn Bridge the same route 
should be employed as far as Cooper Square, 
then instead or using the Bowery, use La- 
fayette Street to the City Hall and east across 
Brooklyn Bridge, into Fulton Street. 

To reach Bay Ridge and the Fort Hamilton 
section of Brooklyn, the same route may be 
used to Canal Street, then over the Manhattan 
Bridge into Flatbush Avenue, and instead •£ 
continuing to the Park Plaza on the route to 
Coney Island, use 4th Avenue south from 
Flatbush Avenue and Hanson Place. There 
is also a ferry to the Hamilton Avenue sec- 
tion from South Ferry (Battery) to Hamilton 
Avenue. 



Ferries to All New Jersey 



Tourists bound for New Jersey will find 
numerous ferries crossing the Hudson. Most 
of them lead through shabby streets with 
rough pavements on the Jersey shore, but nev- 
ertheless cannot be avoided in going to certain 
towns. The Christopher, Desbrosses and 
Cortlandt Street ferries, as just noted, do not 
lead to desirable thoroughfares on the Jersey 
side. The 23rd Street ferry to 14th Street, 
Hoboken, is not particularly desirable on ac- 
count of the Jersey end, but it may be em- 
ployed to save time in going to Newark and 
points southwest of that city. 

The 42nd Street ferry to Weehawken is 
preferable, of the so-called downtown fer- 



ries, for reaching the Hudson County Boule- 
vard, Newark, Paterson, etc 

The Fort Lee or 130th Street ferry to 
Edgewater, New Jersey, is a desirable ferry 
for the Hackensack district, although there is 
little choice between it and the Dyckznan 
Street-Englewood ferry. The latter leads into 
what is known as the Englewood approach* 
which is a 6 per cent grade, of modern 
vitrified brick, a mile and a quarter up the 
Palisades. On warm days it is likely to give 
a heavily loaded car, particularly one of long 
wheel base, a stiff pull, as there are two hair- 
pin turns. 



History of Lower Manhattan 



While cruising around, the lower historic 
section of Manhattan is interesting, if the 
traveler has time to stop and inspect the points 
of interest. It requires* patience to make the 
excursion satisfactorily. To many visitors the 
skyscrapers are of interest, but they are too 
numerous to describe here in detail; the men- 
tion of only a few may serve to stimulate the 
interest of the traveler to a closer study of 
these marvelous structures. 

The greatest of these artificial "peaks," 
which form the canyons of the most talked of 
commercial district in the world, is the Wool- 
worth Building, at Broadway and Park Place, 
51 stories high, and rising 750 feet from the 
level of the street, the tallest inhabited struc- 
ture ever built by man. The Singer Building 



is 612 feet from the street surface and 724 
from its basement. 

The Park Row Building, opposite the old 
Post Office, is 552 feet from its foundation 
to flagstaff. The Equitable Building, opposite 
Trinity Church, is the largest office building, 
in point of floor space, in the world. 

The land upon which No. 1 Wall Street is 
erected sold for $576 a square foot, a record 
price in New York realty. 

One or two of the larger structures in this 
district contain more than twenty million cubic 
feet of space. The amount of glass used 
varies according to the shape of the building, 
and sometimes exceeds 200,000 square feet. In 
a few of the larger ones there are more than 
thirty-five miles of steam pipes, twenty-five

miles of plumbing, and seventy-five miles of 
picture molding, and a few have 7Q00 doors 
each, and employ more than 12,000 electric 
lights, supplying as many as 4000 offices and 
housing a population of 12,000 people. 

The effect of this enormous concentration of 
steel in a small area is so strong it frequently 
varies the points of the compasses on boats in 
the harbor as much as seven degrees. 

In the historic inner harbor off the Battery 
are the famous Statue of Liberty, presented 
to the United States by the ^rench Govern- 
ment; Ellis Island, where the immigrants land; 
Governor's Island, the headquarters of the 
Army in the East; historic Castle William; 
and off Staten Island is Robbins Reef Light- ' 



On the Battery is an interesting and well- 
kept Aquarium, occupying a circular building 
dating from 1812, when it was Fort Clinton, 
used to defend the city against the British; 
later it was Castle Garden, an amusement re- 
sort, where Lafayette was tendered a reception 
in 1824, and where there were receptions to 
the early Presidents, also to the Prince of 
Wales. Jenny Lind sang there under the 
direction of P. T. Barnum, in 1850, and it 
was used as a Federal Government immigra- 
tion station from 1855 to 1890, when Ellis 
Island was established. 

Near the Battery, at Bowling Green, is a 
new Federal custom house, which cost $4,- 
500,000, standing on the site of Fort Amster- 
dam (1620). 

Bowling Green was established as a park 
by the English Government in 1732; was the 
scene of a public demonstration against the 
Stamp Act, 1775; in 1776, when the act was 
repealed, an equestrian statue of King George 
was ordered from Europe and erected by the 
citizens. of New York; following the Declara- 
tion of Independence it was torn down by 
them, together with the surrounding fence, 
which contained miniature crowns. The statue 
was shipped to Litchfield, Conn., molded into 
bullets, and it was estimated that five hundred 
British soldiers were killed by them. 

The first Trinity Church at the head of Wall 
Street was built in 1697; destroyed by fire, 
rebuilt, torn down and the present structure 
erected in 1846. It is the richest church so- 
ciety in the United States, and enjoys an 
income from its properties of more than a 
million dollars a year. Many noted men and 
women are buried in its yard, and one of the 
most curious "graves" is of Charlotte Temple, 
a fictitious character in Mrs. Rowson's "Tale 
of Truth," 1790. The Martyrs' Monument 
was erected to the American prisoners who 



died in New York prisons in the Revolution. 
Captain Lawrence (war of 1812), Commander 
of the Chesapeake, who during the fight with 
the Shannon, said, "Don't give up the ship,'* 
Alexander Hamilton and others are buried 
there. 

In the Wall Street district the principal point 
of interest is the Stock Exchange, which con- 
tains a thousand members, and in which seats 
have been sold for more than $100,000. There 
is also the Consolidated Exchange at Broad 
and Beaver, and the Curb Market, held un- 
sheltered, in Broad Street in all kinds of 
weather; the banking house of J. P. Morgan, 
the Sub-Treasury, which stands upon the site 
of the old capitol of the province, which was 
later Federal Government Hall, where the first 
Congress was held, and where Washington 
took the oath of office, April 30, 1789. A 
statue of him, in front of the building rests 
upon a stone upon which he stood in the 
building when he was sworn. 

The building is now the greatest repository 
of gold in the world. It is supposed to be 
self-protective, and has steel doors with port 
holes and an arsenal within, and on the roof 
is fitted with turrets from which guns could 
be fired. 

Further south on Wall Street is the Na- 
tional City Bank in a building which was the 
old Federal custom house. Nearby, on Cedar 
and Broadway, is the New York Clearing 
House, and on Liberty Street the Chamber of 
Commerce, which dates from 1768. 

At Broad and Pearl Streets is Fraunce's 
Tavern, restored, where Washington bade fare- 
well to his army. 

West Street and South Street, both starting 
at the Battery, one along the North River and. 
the other along the East River, contain the 
wharves and piers, and bind together the 
wholesale and banking district. On South 
Street and Coenties Slip is the Seamen's In- 
stitute, an interesting sailor's home, which is 
capped by the Titanic Lighthouse, a memorial 
to the ill-fated steamship "Titanic." This in- 
stitute broke the backbone of the sailors' board- 
ing house system which once thrived along 
South and West Streets and robbed "Jack 
Tar." 

Further uptown, near the old Post Office, on 
Broadway and Vesey Street, is St. Paul's 
Church (1766), the only church in New York 
saved from the Revolution. Among the 'early 
worshippers were Lord Howe, King George IV, 
when a midshipman, and George Washington, 
who repaired there after taking the oath of 
office in Wall Street and attended service. 



North of the City Hall 



In City Hall Park are the old City Hall, 
considered a fine example of early architecture; 
the new Municipal Building, which towers 
above its historic forefather; the Hall of Rec- 
ords, on Chambers Street, and the entrance 
to Brooklyn Bridge, opened in 1883, and which 
cost more than $25,000,000. On the east is 
Park Row, which leads into the Bowery at 
Chatham Square, several blocks to the north. 
The Bowery was once famed for its dives, but 
though still interesting, has lost much of its 
former ill repute, a tame and uninteresting 
place. Off Chatham Square is Chinatown, 
and Pell, Mott and Doyers Streets, always 
appeal to the visitor. 

Further north on Broadway and 10th Street 
is picturesque Grace Church, with its open- 
air pulpit. On 14th Street and Broadway is 
Union Square, now largely used as an open- 



air forum, where divers doctrines are delivered. 
It is a favorite spot with the Socialists. 

To the west of Broadway, at 4th Street, is 
Washington Square, around which clusters the 
downtown artistic colony of Manhattan and in 
which is a statue of Garibaldi, the shrine of 
the Manhattan Italians; and Washington Arch, 
a creation by Stanford White. This section 
was originally Captain Robert Richard Ran- 
dall's farm. He left the property, now im- 
mensely valuable, for the support of Sailors' 
Snug Harbor, a sailors' home on Staten Island. 
It yields a rental of nearly $1,000,000 a year. 

East of Broadway, at 8th Street, are Bible 
House and Cooper Square, where stands the 
Cooper Institute. 

Further north, at 23rd Street and Broadway, 
is Madison Square, containing Madison Square 
Garden by Stanford White and capped with a

bronze Diana by Saint Gaudens; on the east 
side, also' at 25th Street, is the artistic white 
building occupied by the Appellate Division of 
the New York Supreme Court. At the south- 
west corner of the Square is the Flatiron 
Building, one of the early architectural towers 
of the central business section. 

On 29th Street, east of Fifth Avenue, is 
"The Little Church Around the Corner." 

At 34th Street and Broadway is Herald 
Square with the Herald Building, also by 
Stanford White, containing picturesque strik- 
ing clocks. 

Fifth Avenue, now said to be the most 
fashionable business street in the world!, re- 
quires a directory of its own and several are 



published, covering it from Washington Square 
to 110th Street. 

In the' newer and upper part of Manhattan 
is Cathedral Heights, facing Cathedral Park- 
way (110th Street), at the foot of Morningside 
Park. The Cathedral of St. John the Divine 
was started by the late Bishop Potter, and is 
designed to be the greatest cathedral in Amer- 
ica, and will require many more years for 
completion. 

On the east side of the Concourse, near the 
corner ' of 192nd Street, north of Fordham 
Road, is the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage, where 
the melancholy poet lived with his invalid wife 
and wherein he wrote "Annabell Lee" and 
• other poems.

Broadway and Riverside Drive are the main 
arteries of Automobile travel in New York. 

THE HOTEL BELLECLAIRE, Broadway at 
77th Street, is right in the heart of the zone traveled 
so much by automobile owners. 

Its service to Automobilists, in the way of accom- 
modations and good food, will prove as satisfying as 
the smooth riding on these fine roadways — Broadway 
and Riverside Drive. 

THE HOTEL BELLECLAIRE is near to you 
coming and going — and when you are good and 
hungry, as you generally are after a tour, do not for- 
get THE BELLECLAIRE'S good food, cooked in 
an appetizing way.

IS*] Pout Chester, N. Y. — On Long Island 
Sound; settled 1732, near Byram River, the 
boundary line between Westchester County, 
New York, and Connecticut. In colonial times 
it was called Sam Pit Landing and Rye Port. 
As early as 1739 there was a ferry service to 
Oyster Bay, L. I. It was a whaling and ship- 
ping point and the patriotic whalers prevented 
the British from shipping supplies to their New 
York forces. The Byram River was a boun- 
dary line between the Dutch and English for 
many years; the Indians called it "Buy-rum," 
and it was doubtless a place where they bought 
rum. 

[6*] Gbeenwich, Conn. — Settled 1640; many 
old houses; Gen. Israel Putnam's house on 
northern side East Putnam Ave.; "Boss Bill" 
Tweed's home, "Milbank," opposite soldiers' 
monument on post road; flight of stone steps, 



on "Put's" Hill, restored; legend is General 
Putnam, who had been out turkey-trotting, with 
Mistress Bush, was a late riser following morn- 
ing; while the shaving soap was still on his 
face, he was surprised by British, and fled 
down steps upon white horse, with lather on 
his face and coat-tails flying to the breeze, but 
he made his escape, and lived to fight another 
day. Greenwich on highest point of land on 
Atlantic coast, south of Maine, with exception 
of Atlantic Highland, N. J., prides itself on 
harboring more millionaires than any other 
city of similar size; Belle Haven section known 
as the "Zoo," because so many Wall Street 
"bears" and "bulls" reside there; estate of 
E. C Benedict, and many modern residences; 
Indian Harbor home of Indian Harbor Yacht 
Club; Bruce Art Museum built by a well 
known cotton merchant.

The whole Chappaqua territory is famous for 
its apples and cucumbers. At the railway 
station is a statue of Horace Greeley, who es- 
tablished a farm while editor of "The New- 
York Tribune** and called it Greeley Swamp. 
The old gentleman made free with the natives 
and frequently orated to them around election 
time. He never learned much about farm- 



ing, although he used his expereince to answer 
farming questions in his paper. One of his 
gentle readers inquired if Paris Green was 
good to put on potatoes, and Horace replied 
that it might be "for those whose taste were 
vitated by rum and tobacco, but that he pre- * 
ferred ham gravy." He died at the home of 
Dr. Qhoate near his farm, Nov. 29, 1872. The 
original house was burned, but a later one, 
on the site, is occupied by his daughter.

[2*] Hastings-on-Hudson, N. Y. — In the 
river opposite is Indian Head, highest point 
of the Palisades. A small but highly victorious 
battle, from the Continental Army's stand- 
point, took place at Hastings, Sept. 30, 1778. 
While it is not mentioned by all historians, it 
is well authenticated. After the battle of Mon- 
mouth, N. J., }une 29, 1778, Washington moved 
back to the neighborhood of White Plains. On 
the morning of September 30 a detachment of 
Pennsylvania Continentals, commanded by Col. 
Richard Butler, was in the neighborhood of 
Hastings, and learned from Peter Post, an inn- 
keeper, that a band of Hessians and British 
were on their way from Yonkers. The Amer- 
icans immediately decided to ambush them, and 
concealed themselves in a cedar grove, now a 
part of the estate of F. C. Zinsser. When 
they were fired upon near Edgar's Lane the 
British troops dismounted and made a stand, 
but were quickly driven down a ravine into the 
Hudson, where many of them drowned; others 
escaped along the river bank to Yonkers. At 
this time Jeremiah Dobbs, from whom Dobbs 
Ferry takes its name, ran a ferry across the 
river to Molly Sneeden's Landing, near the 
village of Piermont. 



[3 # ] Dobbs Ferby, N. Y. — A Revolution*™ 
lighting ground, frequently mentioned in ma- 
neuvers of Continental and British armies: 
Livingston Manor Washington's headquarters. 
(1783) and meeting place between Washington 
ind Sir Guy Carlton for the arrangement oi 
terms of peace. The room where the paper> 
were signed is still preserved, with same 
furniture used on historic occasion. Genera? 
Lafayette's table may also be seen in house; 
in front of the house is Washington-Rocharo 
beau monument, commemorating meeting ot 
Washington and French allies. The Misses 
Masters' School, located there, home of Bob 
Ingersoll, noted agnostic. Jeremiah- Dobbs, 
Swede, went there from Delaware, and he and 
his descendants ran a ferry for one hundred 
years. Locality was part of Philipse Manor, 
the headquarters of which is now a museum, 
in Yonkers. British occoupied Dobbs Ferry 
and Washington camped there July 4th, 1781. 
Nearby: "Nevis," built by son of Alexander 
Hamilton, named after his father's birthplace 
in the West Indies; Ardsley Golf Club to tbr 
east.

[1*1 Yohkexs, N. Y.— One of the earliest 
settlements along Hudson; name derived from 
Dutch "Younker;" Phillipse Manor House, 
now museum, built 1682, with front added 
1745, excellent specimen of Colonial archi- 
tecture; Mary Phillipse refused hand of Wash- 
ington; property confiscated during Revolution, 
as Frederick Phillipse, then owner, was loyal- 
ist; Manor Lord Phillipse had 100 servants in 
house and owned property for many njiles 
north. 

[2*3 Hastings-oh-the-Hudson, N. Y. — In 
the river opposite is Indian Head, highest point 
of the Palisades. A small but highly victorious 
battle, from the Continental Army's standpoint, 
took place at Hastings, Sept. 30, 1778. While it 
is not mentioned by all historians, it is well 
authenticated. After the battle of Monmouth, 
N. J., June 29, 1778, Washington moved back 
to the neighborhood of White Plains. Qn th« 
morning of September 30 a detachment of 
Pennsylvania Continentals, commanded by Col. 
Richard Butler, was in the neighborhood of 
Bastings, and learned from Peter Post, an inn- 
keeper, that a band of Hessians and British 
were on their way from Yonkers. The Amer- 
icans immediately decided to ambush them, and 
con ce aled themselves in a cedar grove, now a 
part of the estate of F. C. Zinsser. When 
they were fired upon near Edgar's Lane the 
British troops dismounted and made a stand, 
Vat were quickly driven down a ravine into the 



Hudson, where many of them drowned; other* 
escaped along the river bank to Yonkers. At 
this time Jeremiah Dobbs, from whom Dobbs 
Ferry takes its name, ran a ferry across the 
river to Molly Sneeden's Landing, near the 
village of Piermont. 

[3 # ] Dobbs Febby, N. Y. — A Revolutionary 
fighting ground, frequently mentioned in ma 
noeuvers of Continental and .British armies; 
Livingston Manor Washington's headquarters 
(1783) and meeting place between Washington 
and Sir Guy Carlton for the arrangement of 
terms of peace. The room where the papers 
were signed is still preserved, with same 
furniture used on historic occasion. General 
Lafayette's table may also be seen in house; 
in front of the house is Washington-Rocham- 
beau monument, commemorating meeting of 
Washington and French allies. The Misses 
Masters' School, located there, home of Bob 
Ingersoll, noted agnostic. Jeremiah Dobbs, 
Swede, went there from Delaware, and he and 
his descendants ran a ferry for one hundred 
years. Locality was part of Phillipse Manor, 
the headquarters of which is now a museum, 
in Yonkers. British occupied Dobbs Ferry 
and Washington camped there July 4, 1781. 
Nearby: "Nevis," built by son of Alexander 
Hamilton, named after his father's birthplace 
in the West Indies; Ardsley Golf Club to the 
east.

14* J Ossining, N. Y.— Settled 1700; over- 
looking Tappan Zee and derives its name from 
the Sinck-Sinck Indians; called Sing Sing un- 
til 1901, when the people, not proud of the 
fact that a prison was located in their midst, 
decided to change the name. The Phillipse 
Manor, which began at Yonkers, extended as 
far north as Ossining. Off Tellers Point, which 
extends into the Hudson about one and a half 
miles, the British man-of-war "Vulture" lay at 
anchor, waiting the return of Major Andre

14*J Ossining, N. Y.— Settled 1700; over-

the Sinck-Sinck Indians; called Sing Sing un- 
til 1901, when the people, not proud of the 
fact that a prison was located in their midst, 
decided to change the name. The Philipse 
Manor, which began at Yonkers, extended as 
far north as Ossining. Just north is Croton 
Rrrer, which comes down from the eastern 
hills, and Cornell Dam, a part of New York's 
water shed. Off Tellers Point, which extends 
into the Hudson about one and a half miles, 
the British man-of-war "Vulture" lay at 
anchor, waiting the return of Major Andre 
from a conference with Benedict Arnold; a 
party of Americans fired upon her and she 
dropped down the stream. Later Andre made 
an attempt to cross the Hudson at Kings Ferry 
and reach New York by land, which resulted 
in bis capture. 

[5*1 Dobbs Fkkjly, N. Y. — Livingston Manor, 
Washington's headquarters (1783) and meeting

The room where the papers were signed is still 
preserved, with same furniture used on historic 
occasion. General Lafayette's table may also 
be seen in house; in front of the house is 
Washington-Rochambeau monument commemo- 



rating meeting of Washington and French 
allies. The Misses Masters' School, located 
there, home of Bob Ingersoll, noted agnostic. 
Jeremiah Dobbs, Swede, went there from Dela- 
ware, and he and his* descendants ran a ferry 
for one hundred years. British occupied 
Dobbs Ferry and Washington camped there 
July 4, 1781. 

[6*] Tabrytown, N. Y.— Settled 1*45, on 
the site of an Indian village, by Dutch; a resi- 
dential suburb on the old Albany Post Road, 
with commanding views of the Hudson. There 
is a monument commemorating the capture of 
Major Andre (1780), the spy. Schools: 
Hackley School for Boys; Knox School for 
Girls (Marymount); the Castle School, and 
others. Sleepy Hollow Cemetery was the 
graveyard of the Old Dutch Church, still 
standing, built of bricks from Holland (1699). 
Washington Irving, Carl Schurz (18291906) 
are buried there. Washington Irving was a 
warden of Christ Church, and the bridge made 
famous by his tale of the "headless horseman" 
across Pocantico Brook has been replaced by 
a new one, gift of William Rockefeller, 1912, 
as memorial to the talc of Ichabod Crane. 
Nearby: Rockwood Hall, home of William

[6*] Hastihgs-on-the-Hudson, N. Y. — A 
small but highly victorious battle, from the 
Continental Army's standpoint, took place at 
Hastings, Sept 30, 1778. On the morning of 
September 30 a detachment of Pennsylvania 
Continentals, commanded by Col. Richard But- 
ler was in the neighborhood of Hastings, and 
learned from Peter Post, an inn-keeper, that 
a band of Hessians and British were on their 
way from Yonkers. The Americans imme- 
diately decided to ambush them, and con- 
cealed themselves in a cedar grove, now a 
part of the estate of F. C. Zinsser. When 
they were fired upon near Edgar's Lane, the 
British troops dismounted and made a stand,

Albany, N. Y. 



Albany, N. V. — One of the oldest cities 
in the United States, settled by the Dutch in 
1623. 

Long before Hendrick Hudson tailed up the 
Hudson, the French, working down from Can- 
ada, had established a trading post at the 
point where the ancient Indian trail started 
from the present site of Albany through the 
Mohawk Valley to the St. Lawrence River, the 
lakes of central and western New York, and 
Niagara. 

Dutch, Huguenot and English regimes suc- 
ceeded each other; and the name changed in 
turn from Fort Nassau to Beverwyck, to Fort 
Orange and finally to Albany. 

Gradually the place grew in importance, espe- 
cially as a center for travel and transporta- 
tion from Manhattan or New England to the 
interior. 

Albany was the meeting place of the first 
Provincial Congress, held 1754, to formulate 
a plan for a union of the several colonies. 

It was also the key to the primitive high- 
ways to central and northern New York, which 
the French and Indian and Revolutionary wars 
brought into new importance; during both 
conflicts military expeditions frequently passed 
through en route to Lake George, Lake Cham- 
plain, Canada, Lake Ontario and the Niagara 
frontier. 

Burgoyne's expedition of 1777 was directed 
primarily against Albany, which he hoped to 
capture with the aid of forces from Oswego 
and New York, and crush the Revolution in 
the north — a plan frustrated by his defeat at 
old Saratoga <Schuylerville). 

Nearly all departments of the State Capitol, 
which cost $25,000,000, are open to public sev- 



eral hours a day; also the State Museum, m 
the Educational Bldg., Washington Avenue, 
nearly opposite Capitol. 

The State Library is one of the best schools 
for librarians in the U. S. 

The Philip Schuyler mansion (1762), at the 
head of Schuyler Street, corner Catherine and 
Clinton Streets, was purchased by the State; 
open to visitors. 

The State Normal College occupies an at- 
tractive site in an angle of Washington and 
Western Avenues, 1 m. west of CapitoL 

Fort Cralo, one of the oldest buildings in 
U. S., was erected in 1642 as protection 
against Indians. 

On the river road, a short distance south 
of Rensselaer, was a military rendezvous dur- 
ing French and Indian wars, and was used to 
some extent during Revolution. In a canton-v 
ment, back of the main building, an English 
surgeon is said to have composed "Yankee 
Doodle," 1758, when British and Colonials were 
fighting together against the French and In- 
dians. 

"Wolfert's Roost/' formerly residence of J. 
K. Emmett, actor, was afterward the home of 
Governor and Ex-U. S. Senator David B. Hill 
(1 m. out on Northern Boulevard). 

The Country Club is 2 m. out on Maaain* 
Boulevard. 

Albany has an extensive park system; most 
of the parks have monuments and historic 
tablets. 

The Albany Academy for Boys is one of riw 
historic schools of the Empire State. 

Many well known men were born in tbe 
city including Bret Harte, Western story 
writer (1839).

New London, Conn. 



New London, Conn. — Settled 1646 at 
Indian village "Namelang," by John Winthrop, 
son of Governor of Massachusetts; once called 
"Pcquot Harbor" and Thames, on which it is 
located, was called Mohegan River; early set- 
tlers were largely mariners and ship-builders, 
and until the Revolution the place carried on a 
large trade with the outside world. 

During the Revolution, the Connecticut Navy 
(26 vessels) made these waters a base of sup- 
ply and the warehouses were packed with 
British spoil. 

The American fleet, which raided the Ba- 
hamas, carried its prisoners and prizes to New 
London and in revenge the town was raided 
and burned (Sept. 5, 1781) by a British fleet 
in command of Benedict Arnold, the traitor, 
who was born only a few miles from the town, 
at Norwich. 

After the Revolution the port's shipping was 
destroyed, but for many years the whaling in- 
dustry held its own. 

There is a pier owned by the State and the 
government maintains an artillery headquarters. 
as well as a naval and submarine station. 

The Harvard- Yale boat race course extends 
four miles up stream from the railroad bridge. 

In the summer there is a lively colony along 
the shores and the harbor is filled with boats. 

Ferry to Fisher's Island, a summer resort. 

One of the houses saved from the Arnold 



fire and raid is the Shaw mansion. Bank Street; 
saved by tapping a tank of vinegar in the 
garret to extinguish the flames; now owned by 
County Historic Society. 

On Main Street, one mile from Parade, is a 
restored mill, of 1650, built by young John 
Winthrop, who ground corn for the colony. 
Though many repairs have been made, the oW 
wheel and other original features have bees 
purchased. 

A little red house, where ^athan Hale taught, 
stands, as a museum. 

A wooden Court House bears date of 1784. 

One of the new institutions is the Connec- 
ticut College for Women, opened 1915, for 
which Morton F. Plant has given $1,000,000. 

On the site of old Ft. Trumbull ia an instruc- 
tion school of the United States Revenue Cutter 
Service. 

The Race Rock lighthouse, Fisher's Island, 
was built by the late F. Hoplrinson Smith, 
author. 

Asleep commercially for many years. New 
London is wide awake and supports a large 
variety of factories. 

Nearby: Quaker Hill, Oxoboro Brook, Mo- 
hegan Hill, Mohegan Settlement, dwellings of 
the last of the Mohicans (Mobegana); Ocean 
Beach and Cockegan Rock, one of the largest 
boulders in the world.

Providence, R. I. 



Stats of Rhosb Iilamb.— Settled 1636. 
by Roger William*; smallest Stste ia the 
Union; "Stste of Rhode Island sad ProTidence 
Plantation" is still the official name; first of 
colonies to throw off English yoke; founded by 
people driven out of the Bay Colony, Roger 
William* being first to preach freedom of con- 
science snd separation of Church and Stste. 
Nsxragsnsctt Bsy is one of the chief assets 
ef State, making possible Providence snd New- 
port; extreme length 47.S miles. 

Pbovimkcb, R. I. — Capital of the smsll- 
est Stats in the Union; settled 1636; s port 
of entry snd second largest city in New Eng- 
land; situated on Providence River snd north- 
ern arm of Narrsgansett Bay. 

The Seckonk enters the Providence st this 
point 

It is now called the "Southern Gsteway 
to New England" and its metropolitan district 
ranks sixth among American cities* in the 
value of the products of its fsctories, snd fifth 
in the size of its annual pay roll. 

It has 3000 fsctories, employing more than 
30,000 hands. 

It lesds in the manufacture of woolens snd 
worsteds, jewelry snd silverware. 

The late Robert Knight was the largest in- 
dividual cotton mill owner in the world snd 
controlled in Rhode Islsnd alone more than a 
score of mills* 

There are a vast number of notable land- 
marks and places ef historic interest. 

The city was founded by Roger Williams, 
the first American apostle of "freedom of con- 
science and the separation of the church and 
state." He also believed that the Indians had 
a right to their land and he was banished from 
Massachusetts. 

With five companions he paddled around 



the present site of Providence in a canoe look- 
ing for a place to land. 

He landed by a bubbling spring, of which 
there are still evidences in the b as emen t of 
house on North Street 

He was received in a friendly manner by the 
Indiana, and named the place Providence la 
gratitude for his deliverance in time of die 
tress. 

He was hounded by the colonista of Massa- 
chusetts and Connecticut and finally west %o 
England for a royal charter. While there he 
published his Indian dictionary. In the mean- 
time those whom he had left behind drew up 
their celebrated "compact" which ultimately 
revolutionised civil government. 

The ancient document is preserved in the 
City Hall. 

The settlers continued in friendly relations 
with the Indians until the village was almost 
destroyed in the King Philip War. 

It waa rebuilt and at the beginning of the 
Revolution maintained a world's trade. 

The Brown Brothers, progenitors of omx 
national family, maintained nearly a hundred 
vessels running to Chins snd India. John 
Brown snd s party of volunteers captured ana 
burned the British schooner "Caspee" (June, 
1772), one of the first acts indicating the spirit 
of independence which wss to follow through 
out the colonies. 

The men of Providence were the first to 
move for s Continental Congress in 1774. 

They burned British tea March 2, 1775. and 
in Independence Hall struck the name of the 
King from their charter, and stood alone ea a 
free and independent state. 

The modern institutions of the city are far 
too numerous to mention in s brief resume of 
its development. There are guide books which 
cover its points of interest in detail.

[2*3 Niwpoet, R. I.— Th fact that Newport 
is America's best known and most exclusive col- 
ony, plus the fact that the cottages of the 
wealthy residents are largely hidden from the 
public roads, makes it a disappointing place to 
▼iait hurriedly. 

It was founded 1639 by refugees from the 
Bay Colony and was an off-shoot from a settle- 
ment established in 1638 on the northern part 
of the island. 

In the two settlements there were 1000 in- 
habitants and they united 1640 as the Colony 
of Rhode Island; seven years later they united 
with Providence. 

The Baptist Church was built in 1640 and 
is the second oldest in the United States, Provi- 
dence having the first 

The first public school in America was opened 
in Newport and was probably first school 
"opened to all" in the world. In those days of 
every nationality was welcome at Newport 

The early merchants made large fortunes out 
of rum, distilled from molasses from the West 
Indies. They exchanged rum for slaves in 
Africa and the commercial keynote of the town 
was "more run, more niggers." 

Prior to the Revolution, Newport had a 
greater foreign trade than New York, and its 
social importance was fully recognised at that 
time. 

The English fleet made it a strategic center, 
and this destroyed a commerce, which was never 
regained. 

Trinity Church was the only large building 
the British did not use for barrack or hospital 
work, probably because its spire was capped 
by a crown. Its interior, with high pulpit, 
sounding board and old box pews, to-day give 
it an unusual Colonial atmosphere. 

Rochambeau visited Newport with his French 
army and restored some of the fortifications. 

On the authority of an officer of Roc ham- 
beau's staff the town was the first in this coun- 
try to introduce "afternoon tea as a society 
•port" 

The Dumplings and the original Fort Adams 
were built by the French. 

In Washington Square is a statute of Oliver 
Hazard Perry, hero of Lake Erie. 

The old State House, now a Court House, 
was built 1743 and contains Gilbert Stuart's 
full length painting of Washington. 

From a balcony in this building were pro- 
claimed the accession of George III and the 
Declaration of Independence. 

An old brick market (1762) still stands, but 
in a poor state of preservation. 

The White Horse Tavern was built and used 
ss a residence in 1739. 

From Long Wharf Washington and Rocham- 
beau reviewed the French troops. 



Touro Street has the oldest Jewish Synagogue 
in America (1760). The street was named for 
the first Rabbi, Isaac Touro. The Jewish Cem- 
tery dates from 1677. 

The Historic Society is opened daily except 
Sundays. 

A part of Belleview Avenue was originally 
Jew Street. 

The Redwood Library, one of the oldest in 
the country, had for its first librarian an uncle 
of Sir Walter Scott There are 65,000 volumes 
and many pictures, including portraits of early 
Indian chiefs. 

In Touro Park is Old Stone MH1, the sub- 
ject of endless discussion among antiquarians. 
Some have maintained it was built during the 
twelfth century. It has also been credited to 
the Norsemen. Others contend it was built by 
Benedict Arnold, grandfather of the traitor, 
for a wind mill, and that he described it in 
his will (1777). 

The Vernon House, Mary snd Clark Streets, 
was Rochambeau's headquarters; now a charity 
organisation building. 

Ft. Adams, on a point of Newport Harbor 
and Brenton's Cove, is a military, post 

A torpedo station is maintained on Goat 
Island, the burying place of many English 
pirates, captured in the Revolution. There is 
a local superstition that their ghosts rise snd 
visit the main land. 

The naval training school and war college 
for officers are on Coster's Harbor Island. 

The first magnificent home of Newport was 
built 250 years ago. Among the early fasuion- 
able visitors were rich planters from the South, 
particularly the Carolinas. 

The cottages of the fashionables are almost 
too numerous to mention in a brief space. They 
include the estate of Robt Uoelet; the mansion 
of Mrs. Ogden Goelet; Win. K. Vanderbilfs 
marble palace, now owned by Mrs. O. H. P. 
Belmont; the Wolf e-Lorillard-Twombly -cottage; 
the Breakers, buih by Cornelius Vanderbilt; 
the home of Perry Belmont; the villa of Mrs. 
Herman Oelrich; the villa of Vincent Astor, 
the villa owned by Win.. Waldorf Astor; a 
picturesque Btone house owned by Mrs. Joseph 
Widener; the Henry Clews House; the Stuy- 
vesant Fish house, the summer home of J. 
Pierpont Morgan; James Gordon Bennett's 
house and many other homes, owned by people 
who are socially prominent, but whose names 
are not so familiar to the public 

The Old Lime Rock Lighthouse has been 
for more than 50 years in charge of Ida Lewis, 
who has saved nearly two score of lives. 

At Bishop Berkley's Rock, the English writer, 
whose name it bears, composed "Alchiphron," 
which contains the familiar line: M Westward 
the course of Empire takes its way."

1 7* J Osteivillk, Mass. (Cape Cod). — In a 
deep pine wood. A fine public library was 
given, largely by Win. Lloyd Garrison, who 
summered there. East Bay is surrounded by 
many fine residences. West Bay is fed by 
Marston'a River. Wianno is a fashionable 
residential section between the two bays. The 
Sepuit golf course is considered one of the 
finest on the cape. Camp Opechee on Lake 
Waquavquet is noted for fish dinners. 

18*] Bainstable, Mass.— Settled 1639. It 
is a pleasant, restful town with old houses 
and the oldest bell in New England, cast 
in 1665. Priscilla Mullens, to whom John 
Alden carried Miles Standish's proposal, lived 
there. Miles Stan dish, surveyor by profession, 
made original surveys of this part of Cape 
Cod. Once had a considerable whaling fleet. 
James Otis, orator and signer of the Declara- 
tion of Independence, and Chief Justice 
Lemuel Shaw were natives. 

(10*J Yabmouth, Mass. — A typical Cape Cod 
town, once a whaling, now a cod-fishing center. 
During the Revolution works were established 
for the distillation of ocean water and the 
manufacture of salt. It is a popular summer 
resort, and there are many Indian legends. 
Near Swan's Pond was an ancient Indian 
village, the burial ground of which may be 
seen. 

Ill*] Dsnnis, Mass. — Indian name "Nobscus- 
sett"; first a fishing and trading point, later 
salt making center; famed for respectability of 
inhabitants, including many retired sea cap- 
tains. The Shivericks built fast sailing ves- 
sels early date; wild cranberries, grew in great 
profusion in neighborhood, were cultivated 
(1840); Indian legend regarding Scargo Lake, 
says whimsical daughter of a chief desired a 
fish pond; the women of her tribe scooped out 
one with clam sheels; the men filled the basin 
with water and thus developed Scargo Lake. 
[12*] BiswsTlt, Mass.— Settled 1860; on the 



"ankle" of Cape Cod; a fishing village and 
rendezvous of sea-edptains, active and retired. 
A collection of paintings, in the home of Capt. 
Albert Crosby, may be seen. Joseph C. Lincoln, 
author of "Partners of the Tide" and other 
Cape Cod stories, was born in Brewster, which 
boasts of the oldest windmill on the cape; 
named for the elder Brewster, of the "May- 
flower." 

[13*] Orleans, Mass.— (Cape Cod.)— Settled 
17S0; of late years has acquired some notice 
as a tax-dodgers' paradise. In five years the 
valuation of property increased from $700,000 
to $5,000,000, at a rate of $3.00 per thousand, 
during which time many local improvements, 
including good roads, were completed. Mill- 
ionaires flocked there in an effort to establish 
"legal residence." Some of them merely en- 
gaged rooms in tents or lodging houses. Stam- 
pede started by S. W. Winslow, a show 
machinery manufacturer. Township consider- 
ably cut up by the sea; on the east is Nauset 
Beach, which reaches to Highland Light, a 
distance of thirty miles; this beach takes in 
Pleasant Bay, the largest body of enclosed 
water on Cape Cod. A French cable makes a 
landing at this point. There are three wind- 
mills more than 150 years old. Captain John 
Smith landed on the shores and left one of his 
ships for some time, under the command of 
Captain Hunt, who kidnapped a number of 
Indiana and sold them as slaves in Spain for 
$100 each. About the time of our Civil 
War, the Sparrow Hawk, an English ship of 
1620, was uncovered by the sea, and an 
examination of the ancient wreck disclosed 
the fact that there was a passage for vessels 
into the harbor, at that time, which was noted 
on the early English charts, but had been lost 
from the later charts. In 1717 the sea washed 
a passage across the cape between Orleans and 
East ham, but with much labor the inhabitants 
succeeded in filling it up.

[14*) Eastham, Mass.— A Cape Cod town, 
settled 1644, on site of Indian "Nawset"; first 
white settlers, pilgrims under direction Thomas 
Prince; early ministers of gospel received por- 
tion of oil from whales washed ashore; Henry 
Thoreau says: "One could see divines sitting 
idly upon beach, waiting for salary to come in"; 
Nauset Lights on bluffs, with life saving sta- 
tion below. 

IIS*] Wellfleet, Mass. — Incorporated 1775. 
It wss the second landing place of the Pilgrims 
and once a whaling port, now a fishing village 
catering to summer visitors. "Wherever over the 
world you see the Stars and Stripes floating 
you may have good hope that beneath them 
some oue will be found who can tell you the 
soundings of Barnstable, or Wellfleet, or Chat- 
ham Harbor." Birthplace: Lorenzo Dow 
Baker (1840), named by his mother Thankful 
Baker, who began the West Indian fruit busi- 
ness which has developed into the United Fruit 
Company, with an investment of $100,000,000 
in the West Indian fruit business. 

[16*] North Truro, Mass.— The baybcrry, 
which is abundant, is turned into the bay* 
berry candles to burn at Christmas time, for 
food luck. Nearby: Highland Light, one of 
the first marine guides erected in U. S. 

[17*] Provincetowm, Mass. — Eliminating the 
theory that Norsemen visited this point in 1006, 
which has by some been set up as a fact, the 
first visitors were probably a party under Cor- 
tereal, 1501. Gosold explored the section, 
1602, and John Smith 1614. The Pilgrims 
sighted the tip of Cape Cod and anchored 
Nov. 11, 1620, about three-quarters of a mile 
from the shore, in Provincetown Harbor. The 
Pilgrims waded ashore and, while the "May- 
flower" was at anchor in the harbor, Peregrine 
White was born on board, the first white child 
officially born in what afterward became New 
England. The historic "compact" was drawn 

PageS24 



while the "'Mayflower" was at anchor and tic 
next move was the landing of Miles Standufe 
with sixteen men at Long Point. Some his- 
torians have said these gentlemen procee d ed 
to rob graves as their first official act, but, of 
course, there have been many writers preju- 
diced against the Puritans. The place, pictur- 
esque in its location and by reason of large 
surrounding sand dunes, progressed immediately 
into a fishing and whaling locality, and is one 
of the most popular summer places upon the 
Cape. Many artists are among the summer 
colonists, and the local Art Association holds 
an annual exhibition in the Town HalL Pil- 
grim monument (250 ft. high) stands on Town 
Hill; corner stone was laid by Mr. Roosevelt, 
and it was dedicated by Mr. Taft; said to !>• 
tallest masonry tower in the country, except 
Washington Monument, Washington. A curi- 
ous industry is carried on by David C. Stull, 
who buys all of the sperm from diseased 
whales at the fabulous price of $500 a pound; 
less than two tons have ever been collected. 
and Mr. Stull has handled the greater part of 
it. It is the basis of a rare perfume. 
Cape Cod has been pictured as a fish* hook 
with Race Point representing the point and 
Long Point the barb. West of Long Point is 
Wood End Life Saving Station. There are 
great sand dunes called "Provincelands," which 
belong to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 
These lands were once covered with trees, am, 
scientific forestry has been carried on by the 
State of late years. Many of the early settlers 
were lost in the sea, which naturally rages 
about the tip of the Cape, and makes the fishing 
business a hazardous one. The British fleet 
used the harbor, 1812, and it was at Province- 
town that the British man-of-war turned over 
to the government Mason and Slidell during 
the Civil War.

Boston, Mass. 



Boston, Mass. — Called "Hub of the Uni- 
verse, is an important manufacturing cen- 
ter, being the home of more than one-fourth 
of the State's industrial plants. Shoes, shoe 
machinery, textiles, chocolate, confections and 
watches constitute the principal products. The 
city is said to be not only the country's great- 
est wool market, but the largest fish market 
as well, a single pier handling annually some 
100,000 tons of fresh fish. Boston numbers 
among the world's foremost "seaports, and 
boasts both the largest steamship pier and dry 
dock in the world. 

Settled (1630) by Governor John Winthrop; 
and his followers. The latter, greatly re- 
duced in number, were later reinforced by a 
group under the leadership of Isaac Johnson, 
who named the colony Boston, in honor of 
Johnson's home in Lincolnshire. 

Made land gives the peninsula 1800 acres; 
the greater city contains 43 square miles, 
making it the smallest of the larger cities in 
the U. S. * 

Rackbay was settled in 1860; it is entirely 
made land. 

Boston Common (48 acres) has existed 
since the city was founded; the most con- 
spicuous monument is the Shaw memorial, 
by St. Gaudens (base by Stanford White), 
showing Col. Robert Gould Shaw leading negro 
troops into battle. 

The Public Garden, containing 24 acres, 
presents a fine floral display. 

The Old Granary burying grounds hold the 
remains of Peter Faneuil, Paul Revere, Samuel 
Adams, James Otis, John Hancock, and Robert 
T. Paine, etc. 

Kings Chapel (1749) is oldest church in 
the city. British officers worshiped there dur- 
ing the siege. 



Dock Square was the original center of 
trade. 

Faneuil Hall (1742) was called the "Cradle 
of Liberty," and contains a collection of his- 
toric pictures, and is the home of the 
Ancient and Honorable Artillery, one of the 
oldest military organizations in U. S. (1638). 

The Custom House, on State Street, by rea- 
son of its imposing tower, is the city's most 
conspicuous landmark, as well as the tallest 
building in New England. From the balcony 
which encircles the twenty-fifth story a splen- 
did view may be obtained. The four dial 
clock on the twenty-third floor is operated by 
electric motors and illuminated at night. Each 
dial measures 21 ft. 6 in. 

Old South Church (1775) was used by the 
British as a riding school. It occupies the 
site of an earlier edifice in which Benjamin 
Franklin was baptized. It now serves as a 
museum for Colonial and Revolutionary relics. 

At Washington^md School Streets is the 
Corner Book Store (1712) the oldest building 
in the city.

[6 # ] Masblehead, Mass.— Settled 1629; old-

life; most of oroginal houses intact; older than 
either Salem or Boston; relics are Court, 
Powder House, and Abbott Hall; Corinthian 
and Eastern Yacht Clubs on Marblehead Neck, 
and locality sought by yachtsmen from all parts; 
has been called birthplace of American navy; 
was a center for privateering trade and harbor 
in summer is crowded with pleasure boats of 
every description. In the Town Hall hangs 
famous painting of "The Spirit of 76," by 
A. M. Willard, which has probably been copied 
and reproduced in greater variety of form than 
any painting in the U. S. Col. William Lee 
mansion, open during summer to visitors, de- 
signed by Bui finch, drawing room decorated 
with hand-painted wall paper; Jeremiah Lee 
house, one of most elaborate of period (1768), 
open to visitors; Town Hall (1727), Marble- 
head's "cradle of liberty," where instigators of 
Revolution met secretly; in loft was organized 
Col. Glover's famous amphibious regiment of 
teamen, which led Continental forces from Long 
Island, and at Trenton saved day by ferrying 
army across Delaware. Skipper Ireson's house, 
not always shown to visitors, as the people of 
Marblehead resent insinuation in Whittier's 
poem, "Skipper Ireson's Ride." which casts 
ignominy upon one of the town's respected citi- 
zens; house on Oakum Bay, near Glover house; 



Marblehead was birthplace of Elbridge Gerry. 
patriot, "signer," and Vice-President of U. S.; 
home of Col. Azore Orne, who loaned govern- 
ment barrel of silver dollars, which it never 
repaid; district of Barnegat was harboring place 
for pirates and smugglers; John Dimond, father 
of Moll Pitcher, lived there and taught 
daughter, afterward "fortune teller of Lynn"; 
Fountain Inn, made famous by legend of Agnes 
Surriage, bar maid, whose story furnished 
Holmes and Long with themes for poems; the 
beauty of Agnes attracted the attention of Sir 
Henry Frankland, Collector of the Port of Bos- 
ton; she became him mistress and in the earth 
quake of Lisbon, 1775, rescued him from the 
ruins for which he made her Lady Frankland; 
Fort Sewall, now public park; Robert D. Evans 
house, floated to Beverly and re-erected, was 
occupied by President Taft as summer Whits 
House; peculiar dialect comes from early emi- 
grants, from Channel Islands; the first settlers 
were quick to fight on any subject; at close of 
Revolution, town boasted 100 orphans, SO 
widows; more than half of crew of "Consti 
tution" came from Marblehead; of 1000 mer> 
sent to the war of 1812, only 300 escaped death 
or imprisonment; when President Lincoln called 
for troops the news did not reach town until 
midnight, and shortly at daylight first company 
to arrive in Boston came from Marblehead.

(/•] Salem, Mass.— Founded 1626; called 
"The Witch City." It* was prosperous before 
Boston was founded, and was twice the seat 
of the State government (1628 and 1774). Its 
harbor had two very early forts, now crumbling 
to ruin. Prior to the Revolution it conducted 
a large trade with the East Indies. In 1770 it 
was tenth city in U. S.; 1914 visited by a dis- 
astrous fire, which swept away many of the 
historic landmarks. Watch Hill most noted 
point of interest; the old jail has knockers 
upon the door for those who wanted to get in; 
Court House contains records of the witch- 
craft delusion, which made the name of Salem 
known the world over, although the delusion 
did not originate there. Nathaniel Hawthorne 
born there, and worked in the Customs House; 
on Turner Street stood "The House of Seven 
Gables," which he visited as a guest of the 
Pynchon family, and his story of "The House 
of Seven Gables" deals with the family and its 
strange mode of life. The Witch House, in 
which many of the witches were tried, was the 
residence of Roger Williams, and was one of 
the oldest houses in the country (1630). 
Witchcraft delusion broke out 1692; a score 
of persons were executed in Gallows Hill Park. 



The Salem Marine Society, organized in 1799, 
was composed of masters of vessels sailing 
out of Salem and who had "rounded the 
Horn." 

[8*] Kevesly, Mass.— Founded 1628; at 
base of Cape Ann, by Roger Conant, first 
real estate promoter of New England; origin- 
ally "Yankee Sorrento." During presidency 
of Mr. Taft, called the "Summer Capital" of 
U. S. and ex-President still maintains h ; * 
summer home. Hale Street follows shore 
many miles. Historic Society Building, home 
of John Cabot (1600); in house of Geo. Cabot, 
Washington had breakfast 1769; Lucy Larcom 
lived No. 13 Wallis Street, occupied by Larcom 
theatre; home of Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, 
Hale Street; also Parsonage of Rev. John 
Hale, whose wife was last person accused of 
witch-craft in New England. Other old 
houses, include 88 Cabot Street, built by 
Joshua Fisher, M. D., captured at sea by 
the British and after his escape returned and 
promoted first cotton factory in the United 
States. From Reservoir, North Beverly, view 
of sea and surrounding towns. Never had a 
liquor license, and property valuation is 
$50,000,000.

113*] Newburyport, Mass. — Settled between 
1630 and 1635 and has retained much of its 
early outward appearance; pride is taken in 
the preservation of everything antique. Lo 
cated near the mouth of the Merrimac, it rose 
quickly to be a pre-Revolutionary shipping 
point In Revolution ship owners turned their 
vessels into privateers and fine prizes were 
captured. "The Wasp" caught thirteen Eng- 
lish merchantmen in three months; twenty-four 
ships took more than two hundred and thirty 
prizes and twenty-five hundred men; cargoes 
were sold at auction for nearly $4,000,000. 
Whitefield, the noted preacher, died on the 
staircase at No. 11 School Street, with a 
candle in his hand, talking to a crowd of ad- 
mirers who came late on Saturday night to 
welcome him. William Lloyd Garrison, abo- 
litionist, and discoverer of Whittier, born on 
School Street. Whittier's sister sent her 

young brother's poem, "The Exile's De- 
parture," to Garrison, at Boston, when he was 



publishing "The Liberator"; recognizing poeb 
cal value in the composition he published it 
The wealth of the early settlers is illustrated 
by the legend of Nathaniel Tracy, xnrcbant 
prince (1771), who could travel from New 
buryport to Philadelphia and stop every night 
under his own roof. During Revolution be 
owned a score of vessels, manned by tare* 
thousand men and carrying three hundred 
guns; and he sold his loot for more than %i, 
000,000. The Historical Society, 164 High Street, 
has a collection of old furniture. No. 201 High 
Street, was home of "Lord" Timothy Dexter 
Mrs. Katherine Tingley, head of a theosophi 
cal society, Point Loma, Cal., was born there 
"Lord" Dexter was an ancient faker whose 
bump of pompous ego made him a notorious 
character. He posed as the greatest philoso 
pher of the known world and did have sense 
enough to make money. Coffin House built 
1654; first suspension bridge in the United 
States built across Merrimac.

[7*] Magnolia, Mass. — A summer resort on 
a rocky point, projecting into the sea, with high 
cliffs on one side and Crescent Beach on the 
other; sometimes called "the Newport of Mas- 
sachusetts"; first called Old Kettle Cove. Mag- 
nolias grow in the swamps and are sold by 
boys in the streets. Wm. Morris Hunt had a 
studio which could be reached only by ladder; 
off shore is Norman's Woe, of Longfellow's 
"Wreck of the Hesperus"; in its rocky shore is 
Rafe's Chasm, where the ocean roars and tum- 
bles madly; in distance Eastern Point, an outer 
arm of Gloucester Harbor.

tures glue, nets, and twie, and ships dried 
fish. On Middle Street are ten Pre- Revolu- 
tionary houses; Old Mother Ann, a curious 
rock formation on Eastern point; Gloucester 
birthplace of Universalism in the United 



States; Unitarian Church (1738) bombarded 
by British (1775); Stage Fort Park' on site of

mon a deserted village. Kipling sailed from 
Gloucester to Banks and wrote "Captains 
Courageous." Connolly's "Out of Gloucester" 
deals with quaint people and customs. Cham

Beau." One of the islands off shore called 
"Three Turks Heads"; Norsemen supposed 
to have landed there and lost a ship; first 
schooner built and launched 1714.

1 1*1 Morou, Mass. — (Boston Metropoli- 
tan District) — A notorious "rum town/* in 
early days, but, like the Blue Point oyster, 
Medford Rum comes from all parts of the 
world, and "the perfume of rum and molasses" 
has almost disappeared from Medford. The 
seat of Tufts College, near town line, largest 
UniTersalists' educational institute. P. T. 
Barnum gave the college a museum of natural 
history and the remains of "Jumbo," largest 
elephant ever held in captivity. One of Royall 
houses (1737), on Main Street, may be visited 
by appointment; in its day was credited with 
being the finest house in U. S.; Isaac Royall, 
West Indian merchant, built it, and during the 
Revolution it was inhabited by his son, who 
fled to England. One of three Craddock houses 
in New England on Ship Street; local His- 
torical Society has discredited genuineness of 
bouse, at least of its location. The builder, 
Mathew Craddock, wealthy London merchant, 



was Governor of Massachusetts Colony, and 
built three houses; Medford, Ipswich and 
Marblehead, but never came to America. 

12 # ] Wobuin, Mass.— Settled 1641. Birth-

who rose from humble origin and poverty to be 
a world renowned scientist. He was driven 
from Concord, N. H., where he married a 
wealthy widow, on account of Royalist ten- 
dencies; fled to Europe and gained position, 
title and wealth. He founded the Rumford 
Scholarship at Harvard. Nearby is the old 
Loammi Baldwin home, birthplace of the Bold- 
win apple, and Loammi Baldwin, Jr., first 
American civil engineer of note, builder of 
government docks, at Newport and Charles- 
town. Edward Johnson, of Woburn, pug-
